    Ridge Runner got a reaction from RPM in Inside of door panel. Is this sound proofing?   
    It is correct ,all the bubbles is probably where it has lifted and may have rust started under them . Scrap it back and wire wheel the rust away but dont heat up the metal or it will warp ,you could also use a flap wheel on a die grinder . Primer and spray new sound deadner over the area

    One advice from me; build more than what you think you need.
    Built a 54X42 over 10 years ago as my 16x20 shop was getting small; looked like this.

     
    Now it looks like this.

    Several years ago, bought a 69 Grande parts car for 500. It was a total rust bucket, but cleared 4000 on selling the part out I didn’t want, while still keeping, fenders, buckets, doors, compete tilt wheel column, and majority of all the little nick knacks to put 2 cars together. Then traded the shell and title for the rear 70 tail end.

    I upgraded my shop recently, went from 1,500sqft to 2,400sqft out in the country away from city taxes and such. You really don't know what all you have until you have to move it in one week. Went from nothing in the way...

    ... to having to get everything under roof. Our old property sold rather quickly and our new place was on the verge of being completed. A month and a half later, things are starting to get put in place, but there is still a bunch of stuff to go through before it is completely opperational.

    Got to get the lift put back together and finish wiring the rest of the building, construct the restroom and small office, go through some more boxes... this is taking forever.

    A few years ago i had a guy drive up and ask me if i wanted an old mustang that a renter left on his property when he moved out ,didnt have to ask me twice ,i hitched up the trailer a headed over to his place ,what was an old mustang turned out to be a 1969 Mach1 with no wheels and setting on pallets . Not wanting to get to exited i took a quick glance at the vin ...hmm O code ? Loaded it up and got home to check that vin again to see that it was a Q code ,even better it was a gulf stream aqua white deluxe interior with fold down and AC.  Motor and tranny was missing and about a week later i traded it for a ski boat that just had a new 429 cj and built jet put in it ,had a whole lot of fun with that boat !

    I have one. Get the bigger batteries and they will last quite a while . I use mine for tear down ,it will zip fenders quick and easy . It will handle most smaller bolts ,i have used mine to remove bumpers but any bigger bolt it probably will not touch

    Front end alignment shims ,although a 69 70 should not need them ,they are sometimes used to align body panels ,about the only place i have ever found them for body panel alignment is at the bottom rear of the front fenders to the rocker .
